A grand day indeed! As a very young girl, I have memories of green porridge for breakfast, mom drawing shamrocks on our faces, wearing pins saying "Kiss Me I'm Irish" and being afraid of ever wearing one again when a boy in school actually tried to kiss me, watching movies like "Darby O'Gill and the little people", and "The Quiet Man". Oh, the fun! My parents have always made a big deal out of this holiday, and they have always made us proud of our Irish heritage. As I've been able to travel to Ireland on several occasions, I am even more proud of such a beautiful land, and equally beautiful people. Just take a look at the beauty of Ireland; the place for which I was named.In front of the Cliffs of Moher, 2004
